Back Designer Statement

Emma Bjorklund


For this collection, I looked at my favorite things in my closet: work shirts, jumpsuits, belt buckles, vintage riding jeans, and denim and thought about what has been most compelling to me over the last four years: how we mistreat the living earth, and the living beings who dwell here.

These clothes are a culmination of my admiration of western wear, work wear and denim, mixed with my accumulating base of ethics around unraveling oppression and extraction.
